Overall an excellent experience. Shiraume is beautifully appointed, with incredibly warm and friendly staff - as well as incredible food (the Kaiseki dinner and breakfast).

To describe Shiraume in a few words - affectionate reception, excellent service, great food (breakfast and dinner), warmhearted assistance (thank you very much Tomoko Okuda and team), authentic rooms, centrally located in the heart of Kyoto. The best accomodation of our journey through Japan.

Gion
Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko"

lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
